Why is OET being updated?

Because healthcare is changing! At OET we take great pride in being responsive to the healthcare sector and this means keeping up with the changes and ensuring the test remains relevant. Here are just a few examples: 

  • The move towards patient-centred care means that healthcare professionals need to be far better at gathering information to understand the needs of their patients and exploring their concerns. 
  • Healthcare professionals and patients are now travelling throughout the world to provide or receive care, which means they encounter a wide range of English accents. 
  • Advancing technologies mean that healthcare professionals may need to communicate with peers and patients not only in the workplace but also remotely. 

OET is being updated to meet these new expectations. All the changes have been well researched, including running trials with candidates like you and taking their feedback on board.
